There's something for everyone at Henley Rugby Club - a leader in its field
Welcome to Henley Rugby Club: Henley Rugby Club is a sustainable community rugby club which started life in 1930 as Old Henleiensians. Over the years we have built a reputation for providing a first class venue for everyone in the town and beyond to enjoy their rugby. From mini members and their parents to our successful women’s team, to our semi- pro Hawks outfit, we are a club that is built on clear foundations of contribution to the local community, where everyone is welcome and enjoys a good time.
Henley’s floodlight Dry Leas ground on the Marlow Road boasts one of the finest pitches in the country, with many representative matches played there such as the recent Under 21s World Cup. The ground is also currently home to Wasps A and Wasps Academy. In addition to a gym and all weather Tiger Turf there is a well appointed Club house with bar and catering facilities for events small and large. Barely a stones throw from the river, Henley Rugby Club reflects everything one might expect from the world famous regatta town of Henley on Thames.
The club maintains a fully inclusive playing structure covering the broad spectrum of a contemporary rugby club and has around 600 members. There are currently 5 adult teams, including women’s, and 12 junior age group teams for U7s to U19s. There are around 300 mini/junior family memberships each year
The 2012-13 season was the senior team’s, the Hawks, most successful for many years. In front of a record crowd of 3270 they became league champions playing the flowing rugby they have played all season. As league champions they were unbeaten at home, scored a record number of 185 tries, were the highest points scorers at over 1200 and had the best defensive record in the league. Newly promoted to League 1 they are one of the top 40 teams in the country.
Henley Rugby Club is strongly town focused, from those that play for us to the parents of minis and juniors. In the rugby season over 2000 per week use the facilities and we also support many local Henley events. We have strong connections to other sports clubs in the town, cricket, rowing, hockey etc and are members of The Henley Partnership.
We also have strong commercial links to local businesses many of which sponsor and support us in a variety of ways.

Along with our other sponsors Savills, Bremont, Marston’s, Lookers Landover , Savile Row Travel and up to 50 local businesses including retailers, pubs, restaurants etc.
